Error message when adding a Calculation (Invalid Token)

We upgraded our BW system a fortnight ago and since then, we cannot add any calculations to any Analysis for OLAP reports.

We get the attached error message when we do -

We are using SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.1 Support Pack 2 - Version:

We have the same issue on every single query available to us in Business Objects from the BW / BICS connection. Anyone with saved Workspaces that had calculations saved in them gets the same message so they can't use these reports.

I have looked on SDN / OSS and can't find anything relevant that is current.

Suggestions welcome!

    Gill - there is a KBA related to the error message but not on your environment here about switching authentication:

    What is more interesting too is that it references an SAP internal note that we (non-SAP) cannot access

    I hope SAP sees this and can take a look.

    • Hi Gill

      The Notes mentioned by Tammy relate to WebI. I'm not aware of similar AOLAP issues though.

      WebI and AOLAP both use the same OLAP connections and the original issue was with the JCo component which we also both use. However this was fixed in 4.0 SP06. Using SSO is just a workaround.

      Although the issue was fixed in 4.0 SP06, it's not clear if the fix was propagated into 4.1 SP02. I would suggest contacting support and bring the above notes to their attention.
